Add AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 to FCC (-A) regulatory domain

Hi,

I would like to verify with you experts if it's possible to register AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 to our existing WLC that has (-A) FCC configuration?

This is an outdoor mesh network and all the other APs are AIR-LAP1522AG-A-K9 (FCC).

I am always getting an error that it has an invalid country code and I even not able to ping it after it acquired an IP address from DHCP.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Add AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 to FCC (-A) regulatory domain

Hi there,

You may want to look into this WLC setting;

Version 4.1 or higher;

Configuring Country Codes

Controllers and access points are designed for use in many countries with varying regulatory requirements. The radios within the access points are assigned to a specific regulatory domain at the factory (such as -E for Europe), but the country code enables you to specify a particular country of operation (such as FR for France or ES for Spain). Configuring a country code ensures that each radio's broadcast frequency bands, interfaces, channels, and transmit power levels are compliant with country-specific regulations.

Generally, you configure one country code per controller, the one matching the physical location of the controller and its access points. However, controller software release 4.1 or later allows you to configure up to 20 country codes per controller. This multiple-country support enables you to manage access points in various countries from a single controller.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note Although the controller supports different access points in different regulatory domains (countries), it requires all radios in a single access point to be configured for the same regulatory domain. For example, you should not configure a Cisco 1231 access point's 802.11b/g radio for the US (-A) regulatory domain and its 802.11a radio for the Great Britain (-E) regulatory domain. Otherwise, the controller allows only one of the access point's radios to turn on, depending on which regulatory domain you selected for the access point on the controller. Therefore, make sure that the same country code is configured for both of the access point's radios.

Hope this helps!

Re: Add AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 to FCC (-A) regulatory domain

The -E AP is setup for the European regulatory domain which has different allowed channels and power levels than the FCC domain.  Technically you could join the AP to the controller if you enabled a EMEA country code but you could be then violating FCC regulations.
